Been making these for 50+ years and they come out perfectly each time.
I do use a hot roll-like or country sausage, along with the baking mix--AKA-
Bisquick. I believe the 'complainers' are using AP (all-purpose) flour and
Sugar--it makes no difference what you add--it "ain't" gonna work ! It must
be Bisquik--then you can fool around with it as much as your heart desires !!

I used 1 and 1/2 cups bisquick, 1 and 1/2 pounds breakfast sausage, and 10 ounces grated sharp cheddar. I made half like that. Then I added 2 chopped fresh jalapeños to the second half of the batch. Both turned out perfect, but the jalapeño balls are THE BOMB! Delicious!

My family has made this a holiday tradition for going on 70 years now. I use 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar, 1 lb of sage ground sausage and 2 1/2 cups Bisquick. Super easy and the kids love to make roll the balls up.

I do not understand why everyone thinks this recipe is too dry. I have been using my recipe, which is exactly like this for many years and they are never dry. I think the key to this recipe is mixing it well, which i have my son do if I don't want to break out the kitchen aid mixer, and also making sure you use freshly grated cheese, and not the bag cheese that is already grated. smh

I, also reduce the baking mix to a little over 2 1/2 cups and sometimes I may increase the cheese to about 12 ounces. I prefer the hot sausage and sharp cheddar, for it really puts some zing into it. I had been mixing it by hand until one day my husband was in charge of making something for church- which was the sausage balls. So to speed up his process, I had him put all of the ingredients into my Kitchen-aid mixer and mixed it up so fast, everything was perfectly blended, and no more baking mix crumbs in the bottom of the bowl that never gets all mixed in!! I have never gone back to hand mixing.

I've tried tweaking this recipe several times and it STILL turns out dry. And please don't insult our intelligence by saying Bisquick is different from flour - no kidding. I'll try it one last time, but so far, it's been a bust.

Very dry - way too much Bisquick - I followed the recipe exactly and they were just BAD

First of all, this is a recipe for Bisquick, not flour. Also, one cup of cheese isn't enough. Add at least two cups, and it needs to be extra sharp. This is not a recipe for Italian sausage! I use Jimmy Dean or Valleydale sausage. Don't over cook these either, and don't add water or butter. If you use the correct ingredients, the sausage balls will be wonderful. They have been a part of our Christmas treats my whole life.

A few dashes of Tabasco sauce will liven these right up. A friend makes these with venison sausage - excellent! This is NOT a meatball - it is an appetizer you pick up with your fingers. Use breakfast sausage - the kind that comes in plastic roll (not Italian, not links).

To clarify the ingredients.. All-purpose baking mix is NOT FLOUR, it is BISQUICK. Plain all-purpose flour would be gross in this recipe! Also, Jimmy Deans sausage is the best! I would not recommend using Italian sausage! Also for more moist balls, try using less bisquick. Hope this helps!

My family, friends and I love this recipe. I have been asked to bring it multiple times and it doesn't seem like New Year's Eve without them. We use Cheddar or "Casserole" cheese and Mild Breakfast sausage. I love to use the leftovers if there are any, for a quick breakfast. We also just use 2- 2 1/2 cups baking mix.

Very dry and bland. I felt 3 cups of flour was way too much so I put in 2 cups and that was way too much.. had to add water but that didn't help the taste. Both my husband and I couldn't eat these the way they were so tomorrow night it will be Swedish meatball night with lots of sauce. I used good sausage too from the meat market. What a waste of sausage.

Terrible recipe. Very dry. Not worth the effort. It turned out to be a crumbly, tasteless mess.

These are always a hit in our family! Our favorite sausage ball recipe! Have found that we like it best with Jimmy Dean's Hot Sausauge and extra sharp cheddar.

dry, and just not very good. I liked how they could be made ahead of time but nobody loved them. They may have been better with breakfast sausage instead of hot Italian.
